Gavin Ishii, 39, of Oxnard, CA was tragically taken too soon doing what he loved the most on Wednesday, May 9, 2017. Rest easy until we see you again.
He was born on March 13, 1979 on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. Moving to Oxnard, CA as a teenager, you could take the boy from the island, but never take the island from the boy. A true local boy at heart, he loved his family, his home state, animals, cars, and good food. Gavin finally found his stride in life, graduating from technical school and finding a great career where he could put his handiness and work ethic to good use.
A proud father, beloved son, and cherished brother, Gavin will be missed by friends and family alike. He is survived by his parents Linda and Ronald Robles of Oxnard, CA; brother Shane (Rick) Ishii-Huffer of Auburn, WA; son Tyler Fontanilla of Kapaa, HI; sister Celina (Ryan) Osgood; brother Ronald (Ashley) Robles, Jr.; sister Sofia (Leo) Jurado; niece Tabytha and nephews Nolan and Ronald III; and extended families. His Grandmother Mary Lou Correa, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins of the Ishii and Correa families of Hawaii join in our grief.
Gavin was preceded in death by his father, Steve Ishii, of Kauai, HI.
Memorial services will be held at 11:00 am on Thursday, May 17, 2018 at Perez Family Funeral Home, 1347 Del Norte Rd, Camarillo, CA 93010. The family requests aloha or casual dress as Gavin would have wanted.
Additional services and celebration of life and final resting plans will occur on Kauai, Hawaii at a date to be determined by the family.
